= Hi! in Finnish

My name is Marja.

I am an author. I am also a professional theatre teacher with a Masters in Theatre and Drama Studies and I teach creative writing. I take great pleasure in having a good cry followed by a great laugh - often to myself first.


I am originally from the Finnish town of Kuopio. Nowadays I divide my time between Finland and Barcelona, my favourite city of the world.

Actually I have to confess that our relationship with the beautiful Mediterranean city has become passionate. So yes, it is serious, although at the moment we are separated...





The only way is up

I wrote my debut novel The Only Way Is Up with the goal of making readers both laugh and cry. So, if you're up for a joyride in an emotional rollercoaster, my book is the match made in heaven for you!
